    Stealing a word from Bill O'reilly, he's a bloviator. I still believe if you're going to run for President, outside of already being Vice President, you should be required to resign from any public office.

    There's just something wrong with being the CEO/Governor or Senator for a state, and instead of doing the business for which they elected you, you're soliciting for another job and not doing the work for the people who elected you.

    Well, I'm sorry to see him go, but I bet Marco Rubio isn't. Christie is doing the right thing, there is nowhere to go from here for him - Kaisach will probably bail within a couple of weeks, as will Carly and Carson. John Ellis Bush has enough money to stay in there for awhile and Rubio had better beat him from now on.

    There's a debate this Saturday AGAIN and SC is Trump's to lose. Kaisach is not a threat outside of New England - he spent more time there than any other candidate. Cruz really needs a good showing in SC and NV because to me, it looks like Trump is going to run away with it.

    I put Rubio near the top months ago in the final shake out. He's a David up against goliaths. We'll see. It is God who raises up men into power. Whether it be men like Obama for our chastisement to wake us up or men like Reagan for our blessing.

    Rubio's sad showing in New Hampshire does not bode well for him. It pretty much a two man race now its just a matter of how long it takes everyone else to realize that. It's between Cruz and Trump and considering that Cruz beats Trump in a head to head contest I'm really hopping that it will be him. Cruz will makes changes. Trump is the GOP version of Obama and the last thing we need after 8 years of Obama. Not to mention I still believe that Trump is a trojan Horse to get a Democrat Elected.

    Rubio is not done. He's just getting started. The robot repetitious moment will be long forgotten by next Saturday when they vote in South Carolina. It's not a two man race, not by a long shot. Jeb is going to make inroads in South Carolina. But eventually I think it will shake out to Trump, Rubio, and Cruz.

    Trump is not going to "run away with it". He might win a few more states, but only because there are so many other candidates staying in the race. Trump "only" got 34% of the vote in New Hampshire, a state where he had his biggest lead in the polls. That means that 2/3's of GOP voters voted for someone else. Take away two more candidates and Trump will be fighting to win anything. I don't see him winning much of anything on Super Tuesday (March 1st) even with a bunch of candidates still in the race.

    Does 10% of the vote represent inroads for ya?
    Get ready to eat your hat. Buy one now if you don't have one.

    Well, a week from this Saturday, I'm going to attend the caucus here and I have no idea who I am going to go for - I will play it by ear but I wouldn't doubt if Trump doesn't win, since the state resembles NH far more than it does Iowa when it comes to primaries.

    I'm not saying that Trump is unstoppable, because he is, but the other candidates are going to have to figure out a way. And 34% is a big deal if you consider there's all these other people in the race - by that logic, 90% didn't vote for Rubio, therefore he's in a weakened position, and he is.

    Where will Trump falter on Super Tuesday? All I can see is that he'll be beat by Cruz over in Texas, but he's only six points behind there. And South Carolina? Double-digit lead, killer ground game, open primary, little time left and that will add up to an easy Trump win there. Florida will be the best bet for Rubio or someone to stop him if this course has a chance of being reversed.

    C.C. will probably end up in Trump's cabinet. Donald likes him.

    Trump will pick up all 99 delegates on March 15.

    Trump will not win:
    Arkansas
    Alaska
    Colorado
    Minnesota
    Oklahoma
    Tennessee
    Texas


    He might win Alabama, not a sure thing, though.
    He might win Georgia, but he wouldn't if it were a three man race.
    He might win Virginia.

    He should win Massachusetts. Kasich will also do well there. However, Trump winning here doesn't mean much because Massachusetts will go Dem in the general election.

    So, one sure win, three maybes, and seven noes. Do you consider losing seven out of eleven states to be faltering? I do.

    Pretty much agree. Not sure how he (as a major owner and supporter of casinos) could possibly lose in Nevada.

    However, I wonder how South Carolina will come out -- even though Trump has a large lead in the most recent polls. The fact that it is an open primary should help Trump, as he tends to bring in independents. However, his use of "colorful language" (to be nice) in New Hampshire should not endear himself to the very large block of social conservatives in the state. (Wonder if Jerry Jr. still supports him???) As a result, I think Cruz will do very well there -- and may even overtake him. Here, I think it will be a two man race.

    The race for #3 will probably be between Jeb and Marco. Marco may pick up some of the social conservative votes as well. While he is Catholic, he also attends an evangelical church and is very open about his faith. I expect him to do well, assuming he doesn't falter in the next debate. Don't know if Jeb's brother will help or not -- if so, it could propel him to #3, but probably not much higher. Kasich should probably focus elsewhere.

    I'm glad Christie is gone. Him and Jeb and Rubio are all good little establishment candidates. I'm sure they are all doing exactly as their handlers are telling them too.

    I concede Trump will probably win Nevada. Not many delegates to be had here. Like Massachusetts this is a blue state that the GOP nominee will not carry in November.

    South Carolina is definitely way different than New Hampshire. There are a lot more evangelicals and the minority population is over 40% of the state.

    I think race for number #3 will be between Cruz and Jeb. I've heard Rubio give his testimony and was impressed.
